Weekly update for the Meadows Elementary School community

First Full Week of School!

Good Evening Meadows Families,


It was a very successful first two days of school online! Thank you to our parents and students for their diligence in getting connected in the Google Classroom. Please remember that every day, attendance will be taken including Friday. Lessons and work must be submitted Monday-Friday.


Next week is our first full week of school and we're excited to spend more time to get to know our students and help them be successful in the digital environment. For the 1-3 weeks of school, teachers are helping students learn how to navigate their new classroom. For example, in Mrs. Kehl's class, they learned how and when they are allowed to use the "chat" feature and the rules associated with this part of their Google Classroom. Students will hear repetition of protocols. By the end of the week, students should feel more confident in their abilities to access assignments, turn them into the teacher and discuss the rhythm of their day online with you, the parent.


A big HUGE thank you to our teachers for working so hard to get their Google Classrooms ready for our students! Thank you to our Office Staff, Mrs. Valaika, our IT for having every device ready for pick up and our Library technician, Mrs. Gucciardi for helping organize materials with the teachers and office staff for pick up this week.


Please reach out with any questions, we are here to support our community. And, we hope that you have a great week!


Dr. Juliet Fine
